Soother of the Month

Talk to Yourself Aloud

This month’s soother is simple but extremely effective: TALK TO YOURSELF ALOUD (trust us, the aloud part really makes a difference)

  • Explain to yourself what is happening by labeling the experience:
    “What I’m feeling is anxiety. It is very uncomfortable, but that is what anxiety feels like.”
  • Choose a mantra (a repeated word or phrase) and say it to yourself. Some of our favorites are:
    “Breathe in. Breathe out.
    “This too shall pass.”
    “I am okay.”
  • Keep talking until the anxiety subsides. Which it will. We promise.
